FINE ART STUDENTS EXHIBIT DEPICTIONS OF LIFE AND DEATH

 

Second-year students from the university’s Fine Art degree course will be exhibiting a selection of their work from today (Tuesday).

 

The exhibition, entitled ‘Vanitas’, aims to explore the theme of life and death through the media of photography, paintings and sculpture.

 

It is being held at the University of Lincoln’s Greestone building on Lindum Hill between 5pm and 9pm.

 

The exhibition boasts a mix of contemporary art styles and media, including both literal and abstract variations around the theme of life and death.

 

Kate Kennerley, a second-year Fine Art and Illustration student who has contributed to the exhibition, has worked hard to help complete the show.

 

“We were given the theme of life and death and had to produce work which related to that subject,” said Kate.

 

“We’ve had to organise the exhibition ourselves which all goes towards our final mark for the unit. This includes our management of the exhibition space and the advertising of the event.”

 

The exhibition is open until January but will close to the public on Thursday 16th December.
